Re: "blocking" with japanese sword

I've always been told not to block but to deviate the opponent's weapon
there are many parades, but I don't thik there's such a thing as a "blocking" like we can see for very strong (or flexible, depends of the period) european swords
I wouldn't even try blocking with a bokken! enough vibrations when deviating already ;o)
